Reblog: Everyday Idolatry: My God | JonathanStorment.com

There are days when I wonder if church is really good for the world. In our better moments, God’s done some incredible stuff through the church, but often church just gives religious people language to be more mad than they would normally be.

Now they’re not just angry, God is angry too. Now their not just indignant they are filled with a “righteous” indignation. All because we never question the idea that God is on our side.

We approach the Divine like Joshua, “Are you for us or for our enemy?”

And I think God’s answer is still “No.”
